SCDSB Partner in SmartSudbury Web Portal

April 1, 2005 - The Sudbury Catholic District School Board is proud to be a partner in the initiative and the City of Greater Sudbury’s Web portal. The official launch of the community based portal took place at Science North on Tuesday evening. A glass window into Greater Sudbury, this extensive Web portal aggregates local information and provides a way for individuals, organizations and corporations such as the Sudbury Catholic District School Board to become more involved in the community. Although this e-learning portal is widely used in Australia, a project of this magnitude has never been attempted in Canada. The Sudbury Catholic District School Board will play an integral role in the e-learning pilot project by utilizing portal technology to leverage advanced e-learning capability. The Education Portal allows all participants in the educational process to come together in an environment that fosters collaboration, communication and a community-wide interest in quality education.

Additional partners in the initiative include, Microsoft, Navantis, iPLAN Corp, and Municipal Software Corporation. The six key segments of the portal-the home page,,, the Seniors’ Portal, The Kid’s Zone and the Youth Zone, will combine to form the complete community portal. “ is a great step forward for this city,” stated Mayor David Courtemanche, who was also on hand for the official launch. “The SmartSudbury program encompasses technology related projects such Geographic Information Systems, virtual museums and e-learning pilot projects. This portal will encourage the use of technology and make Greater Sudbury a better place to live, work and raise a family by making community-based information and services more readily available,” concluded Mayor Courtemanche.
